Have you noticed the trend to teach electronics and robotics in schools? When a US university uses our OLLO (Inventor) to teach their summer students how to program microcontrollers and sensors (sound, near-infrared light and touch) and explore wireless communications and controls, homeschool parents sit up and take notice, with good reason! But just think how much more limber your response can be than that of your school district. After all, you don't need to wait for studies to be completed, curriculum to be evaluated and reevaluated for political correctness, or tests to prove that you should add a course. All you need to do is the pick the kit that best meets your child's needs and jump right in to exploring and learning. Your child could even have his or her own robotics camp in your home next week!

Where to Start in Electronics
If your child has never had the fun of learning electronics, you'll want to start there. With Squishy Circuits, even a preschooler can learn how circuits are formed, about shorting them out, insulators, and much more. For more advanced electronics we highly recommend Snap Circuits Light. You'll build over 175 projects using such neat items as an infrared detector, color-changing LED, glow-in-the-dark flying fan, strobe integrated circuit and much more.

Where to Start With Robotics
Ready for robotics? We absolutely love the Ollo series for their comprehensive, easy to teach and learn approach. Begin with the Ollo Starter 12-week course for ages 10 and up. Next step? Ollo Inventor Kit! The Inventor includes both Ollo Explorer and Ollo Inventor Expansion for 24 more weeks of exploration, construction, and experimentation. When your student is ready for a comprehensive, high-school level robotics course, you'll want the BIOLOID STEM kit. Truly staggering in its depth, the amazing curriculum guide represents twenty-one weeks of comprehensive educational training. With the combination of a flexible construction system and easy-to-use programming software, the Bioloid STEM kit is the best we have seen!
